During the permitting and design phases of work the project team is working to design the project facilities. Part of this means working with neighbors to make those facilities the best neighbors they can be. Cities often use what is called a Good Neighbor Plan (GNP) to address the concerns of facility neighbors. The purpose of a Good Neighbor Plan is to inform facility and site design, construction and operation for these major Partnership facilities. The Plan reflects a good faith effort and commitment by both the neighborhood and the Partnership to ensure facilities remain compatible with the surrounding neighborhood.
In other areas, staff members are talking with neighbors about potential construction impacts so they can understand what to expect during construction.
Recent and upcoming work in Gladstone
Residents in the Glastone area may have seen the construction trailers and fencing that have gone up at the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership’s river intake pump station site at Ames Park and Portland Avenue.
Over the next two weeks, contractors will continue to prepare the site for the construction process. This week, crews will be protecting the large fir tree on the site by surrounding it with concrete blocks.
Pavement will be tested on Iron Mtn. Blvd., between Chandler Rd. and the Hunt Club, on April 23rd between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The pavement testing results will inform the pipeline bidding process. Traffic will be limited to one lane with flaggers in each testing area. Drivers should expect delays of up to three minutes during these hours. Expect to see two vehicles in the road each pulling a piece of equipment. The testing will begin at the traffic circle on Iron Mtn. and move east to Chandler during the one-day testing work.

Geotechnical work near Waluga Reservoir
A Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership contractor will be conducting geotechnical investigations at the existing Waluga Reservoir on April 18 from 8am to 5pm. A rubber-tired backhoe will be used to conduct the work and will access the reservoir from Parkhill Street. This information will be used to make water quality improvements to the existing reservoir and enable better water control to and from the reservoir.
Also, the land use application for the reservoir will likely be re-submitted in early June with an anticipated public hearing date in late summer.
If you have any questions, please contact the Project Hotline at 503-697-6502.
